Sydney's New Theatre is calling for urgent financial support from both government and private organisations and individuals to help keep one of Australia’s unique theatre companies alive.

Frustrated friends and relations across the country are appealing to amateur comedians to resist trying out their lines at family dinners, nights out with the girls/boys, on unsuspecting shop assistants, and as in one tragic case, at the dentist.

The aim of the fundraiser is to help raise $100,000 towards Griffin Ambassadors, our Resident Playwrights and artistic development programs - encouraging the next generation of playwrights and theatre audiences.
